Who We Are

Community Advisory

Board (CAB)

The Flint ReCAST Community Advisory Board’s purpose is to guide, empower, and promote the work of the Flint ReCAST program in accordance with the four specified project goals. The Community Advisory Board and its members offer multi-sector representation with diverse perspectives and experiences in regard to supporting the community at large, as well as the project’s focus population of at-risk youth. 

The Community Advisory Board meets monthly and includes representation from Flint residents, youth-serving organizations, the health care community, academia, public safety, and local institutions. To learn more about the Community Advisory Board, please view the links on this page.
